Reliable sources for dates of birth, etc.[edit]

I note that you are adding specific dates of birth to articdle which had only a tear of birth. Where is this information coming from? Because "date of birth vandalism" is a problem on Wikipedia, you are going to need to provide citations from reliable source for these changes, so we verify this information and be certain that it is correct. I've reverted many of your edits that were not sourced, please do not try to restore them with a citation from a reliable source, they will simply be removed again.

Incidentally, the requirement for a reliable source goes for every piece of information added to Wikipedia if it is questioned by another editor. Thanks, BMK (talk) 02:46, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Numbering of British Prime Ministers[edit]

British Prime Ministers aren't numbered like US Presidents for several boring reasons. Firstly, the term "Prime Minister" wasn't used until the early twentieth century, before then the office was called "First Lord of the Treasury", in fact to this day the Prime Minister still is the First Lord of the Treasury, that's what it says on No. 10's letterbox. Another thing is, the United Kingdom didn't exist until 1801, before then it was Great Britain, so technically Robert Walpole was the first Prime Minister of Great Britain and Henry Addington was the last Prime Minister of Great Britain and the first Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Also, there is a debate as to weather non-consecutive terms are counted twice, like the way the Americans count Grover Cleveland, the Downing Street website says Gordon Brown will be the 52nd person to walk through the doors of Downing Street as PM not the 75th. Then there is the issue of how many times Ramsay MacDonald is counted as the government changed part way through his second term but he remained as Prime Minister. Finally, it's just not a British tradition to count the number people who have held a particular office. Regards - Galloglass 19:40, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 28[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Compulsory education, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page 13th amendment. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 08:57, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Original research[edit]

Your view that compulsory education is unconstitutional is not widely held, and your interpretations of the US Consititution is original research which is prohibited on Wikipedia. Your edits to this article have already been reverted twice, so please stop. Sjakkalle (Check!) 13:18, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

April 2015[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Wikiisawesome. I wanted to let you know that I reverted one of your recent contributions —the one you made with this edit to Matt Flynn (musician)— because it didn’t appear constructive to me. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks. wia (talk) 20:34, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Hello, we enjoy stoping people from exposing the truths about government cover-ups and we've threaten to ban them but we know that won't work.

Actually, it will work. If you add conspiracy theorist garbage to our articles again, we will block your account, which means you won't be able to edit any page but this one. It's pretty simple. The admins just push a couple of buttons, and you can't edit articles.
In fact, the arbitration committee has decided that Wikipedia officially accepts the mainstream explanation of the realities of the 9/11 attacks. In other words, we understand that any claims of government involvement are bullshit, and any admin who knows that you have been notified about this is free to topic ban you or block you the second you try to mess up the article again.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
